Can I talk schedule change, for a minute?

The answer is both yes and no. Of course I can. This is my blog. While the “minute” part of that headline is debatable, all this is just a ploy to get into the subject of a couple of my upcoming workshops anyway.

White snow is integral to capturing the winter wonderland.

Earlier this year, in response to several suggestions I began developing and scheduling a series of short workshops ranging from a couple hours to a single day. Two of these workshops are coming up soon. The first is Preparing for Winter Photography and Enjoying Macro/Close-up Photography. It will take up the better part of November 18th. The second is Introduction to Lightroom an afternoon dedicated to gaining a basic understanding of the Adobe Lightroom application. It’s only a few hours on a December afternoon.

Because I’m such a great, detail oriented person (can you hear the sarcasm?) the date for the Intro to Lightroom was posted incorrectly on my website. Rather than December 11th, it should have read December 9.  Of course that’s been corrected now.

Any way you look at it, we have a couple brief workshops coming up that will help you enjoy your photography a little more this winter and beyond. Getting Ready for Winter Photography and Enjoying Macro/Close-up Photography will prepare you to make the most of the coming winter months. I’m going to cover everything from your undies to your fingertips, from cold batteries that won’t work to “sweating” camera gear which is a serious no-no. That’s all in the morning. After lunch we’ll have some fun with macro/close-up photography which will show how you can really enjoy photography this winter without getting your fingers and toes frozen. It’s fun, it’s cheap and it’s beautiful. That’s all happening November 18th from 10 am to 4 pm at Baltimore Woods in Marcellus, NY.  Be sure to bring our camera and tripod. There will be plenty of subjects to shoot.

You know you want to do this. Why not hop on over and register right now while it’s on your mind. Just click here: Getting Ready for Winter Photography and Enjoying Macro/Close-up Photography.

Close-Up & Macro photography will help wile away those cold winter days.

As fast as this year has gone by, all of a sudden December isn’t that far away and you know you are going to be taking photos over the holidays that you will want to share with family and friends . . . and maybe even print to hang on the wall. Adobe’s Lightroom Classic will make this a snap. One of the things I like best about Lightroom is its ease of use. I’m not interested in spending any more time fiddling on my computer than I need to. I got into photography to be outdoors taking pictures, not to sit in front of a computer for hours at a time.

At this Introduction to Lightroom I’ll cover the critical decisions related to setting up your Lightroom catalog, to important decisions related to importing images from your camera or memory card, to searching for specific images days, weeks or months later, to optimizing your images, to printing from lightroom and who knows what else.
